The Florida Marlins Get Their Revenge on the Pirates!!!

Finally, all of that built up emotion about the Pirates and how they started the Marlins’ losing ways back in April has eased up a bit.  Us Marlins fans, we’re an endangered breed, have been waiting to meet up with the Pirates for some time now.  You see, we’ve had revenge on our minds ever since that little series back in the first weeks of the season in which those Bucs swept us… 

Prior to that series, the Marlins were the talk of baseball and it was taken away from them rather abruptly by a scrappy Pirates team with nothing to lose and everything to prove.

Well, our next meeting has passed and the results were much more favorable for the guys in Teal & Black.

On Friday it didn’t start well as the Pirates jumped all of Chris Volstad early in the game.  Even with a scoring spree at the end of the contest, the Marlins were unable to dig themselves out of a hole and lost 7-4.  Things were not looking good for the home team…

But on Saturday ‘The Fish’ were able to turn it around and get out to an early lead and never look back.  Led by Hanley Ramirez’s first inning home run, the Marlins continued to pour on the offense throughout the game and take the win 5-3.  Andrew Miller put together a nice outing and Emilio Bonifacio and Han-Ram did what was needed to secure the team’s victory.

In Sunday’s ballgame the story was Ricky Nolasco.  Still kind of fresh off of a stint in the minors, Nolasco pitched the best game I have ever seen him throw.   While never the dominant guy that just mows down the opposition, Nolasco was sharp and allowed just 3 hits while collecting 12 K’s in an 8-inning effort.  The offense was sparked by solid base running and timely hits as the Marlins won the game 5-0 and took the series 2-1.

Finally we can put those Bucs in our rearview mirror now that ‘the sweep’ has been avenged!!!

Time For Some Revenge Against The Pittsburgh Pirates!!!

For those of you that remember all the way back to the first month of the 2009 baseball season, you will recall that the Florida Marlins were the best team in all of baseball.

Jumping out to an 11-1 record in their first 12 games, the Marlins were primed to be the first team to ever go 161-1 en route to whipping each and every team they encountered!!  Then it happened…  A 3-game series against the Pittsburgh Pirates sent the once unbeatable Marlins into a downward spiral that ultimately led to 7 straight losses and put them right back into a tight National League Eastern division race.

Well, the Marlins again find themselves in a winning streak, this time 3 games in a row, and they once again are set to do battle with those darn Pirates(Arghhh!!!).  It’s time for ‘The Fish’ to turn it up a few notches and show the Pirates and the baseball world that they can indeed conquer the team that embarrassed them quite easily earlier this year.

Stay tuned to see how this turns out!!!

Go Fish!!!

Damn, These Marlins Are Fun To Watch!!!

3 straight games.  3 days of edge-of-your-seat drama.  3 consecutive games going down to the wire…

And each with the Florida Marlins coming out victorious.  The Florida Marlins could very well be on a 3-game losing streak right now.  Instead, they have won 3 in a row and all are the result of 9th inning heroics and game winning hits!!

What’s most amazing is that it seems to be a new guy every that day that pushing the team over the top.  Whether it’s Cody Ross, Jeremy Hermida, Hanley Ramirez, Jorge Cantu, Dan Uggla, or John Baker, this baseball team is full of player that live to compete and never quit. 

There is no better time to be a Marlins fan than right now!!!   GO FISH!!!
